Worm Castings Outlawed? Chemical fertilizers ONLY! FDA "Food Safety Modernization" Comments End Nov. 22nd

"In addition, FDA’s proposed rule treats all of the following soil amendments as if they were raw manure:
*Compost made without specific heating periods (farmers often refer to this as “static composting,” but the FDA has defined that term differently);
*Vermicompost or worm castings;
*Compost teas with any additives, even simple molasses or kelp meal;
*Any compost that does not meet the precise methods and testing requirements specified in the rule.
The practical effect of the proposed rule is to allow synthetic chemicals to be easily used, while making the use of many natural soil amendments difficult or even impossible for many farmers."

  • For the Preventive Controls Rule:  FDA-2011-N-0920 and RIN 0910-AG36

Just a little PEEP from us might at least get some complaints into the record...
We will use it as evidence that they all know full well the actions taken by FDA/Monsanto is a conspiracy to make money in any and every way they can...Off of our health and our families' bodies...
